ABORTION


GOD WASN'T AS PRO-LIFE AS CHRISTIANS MAKE HIM OUT TO BE.

The people of Samaria must bear their guilt, because they have rebelled against their God. They will fall by the sword; their little ones will be dashed to the ground, their pregnant women ripped open.
-Hosea 13:16

Mary was a virgin, so it’s difficult to pinpoint exactly when life began for Jesus. This hasn’t stopped millions of people from acting like they know exactly when life begins and attempting to control women’s bodies. However, a close look at the Bible actually reveals that abortion is actually encouraged by God. Abortion and miscarriage are used to punish women who are unfaithful to their husbands, showing that God is more than willing to support the termination of a pregnancy if He deems it justified.

If a man's wife goes astray and is unfaithful to him so that another man has sexual relations with her, and this is hidden from her husband and her impurity is undetected… and if feelings of jealousy come over her husband and he suspects his wife and she is impure… then he is to take his wife to the priest. Then he shall take some holy water in a clay jar and put some dust from the tabernacle floor into the water. Then the priest shall put the woman under oath and say to her, "If no other man has had sexual relations with you and you have not gone astray and become impure while married to your husband, may this bitter water that brings a curse not harm you. But if you have gone astray…may the LORD cause you to become a curse among your people when he makes your womb miscarry and your abdomen swell.
-Numbers 5:11-31
